So far, all of our redesigning has resulted in a system that behaves exactly as it did when we started. But what one finds very often in developing systems is that in order to make two steps forward, one must first make one step backwards in order to fundamentally change the direction in which they are going. So, even though it looks like our system has not progressed because it still does exactly the same thing, we are indeed in a very different position, architecturally. By freeing the variant behaviors from the invariant ones, we have generated a tremendous amount of flexibility.
